Vegetarian chow close to Convocation Hall
We're going to see Stephen Lewis and David Suzuki at Convocation Hall on Monday (everybody wave your lighters) and I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a good, vegetarian-friendly dinner that's close to College and University (...it's just occurred to me what a learned intersection that is...). It doesn't have to be entirely vegetarian, just have some vegetarian choice for my friends.
About a 15 minute walk north to Spadina and Bloor is Fresh. The smoothies, soups, salads all are fantastic. My personally favourite smoothie is the Liver Cleanse. My fiance is not a veg and he still loves all the fresh (not meant as a joke) flavours. Also if heading that direction, Thai Basil is great however they use the fish sauce.
Enjoy the talk.
I've enjoyed Vegetarian Haven, but I would agree with gregclow that it isn't anything mind blowing.
Free Times Cafe has great veggie and meat options - 320 College, west of Spadina. Bonus is that it's very affordable. http://freetimescafe.com/home.html
I also really enjoy Fresh by Juice for Life, but you are probably looking for something closer. Just in case... 147 Spadina Avenue, just south of Queen. http://www.juiceforlife.com
The Toronto Vegetarian Association has an online directory that I've found to be useful: http://veg.ca/directory/toronto.html
